    this is the reply I had from SW as to whether the cake was free(as not ground grain) or had to be synned.
    Hi Louise

    Many thanks for your email.
    Food Optimising works so well because you gain the greatest satiety from foods – it’s good quality, bulky food that fills you up. When we come to Syn value foods at Slimming World, anything that is used to replace flour (even if it’s not ‘ground’) is counted as Syns. So if you make cakes, bread, biscuits or pastry using any grain, eg, polenta or couscous, we would recommend that you count it as Syns. The Syn value for the couscous would be: 5.5 Syns per 28g dry on Original, Green and Extra Easy.
    However, if you are eating this as an occasional low-Syn snack on Green or Extra Easy and still losing weight then carry on. Should you find that your weight loss slows or stops, you may need to follow our recommendation that you count the couscous as Syns.
    I hope this helps.
    Kind regards

    Yep, this is the "standard answer", I had the same when I asked the question.

    Personally I wouldn't bother with it!!

    I used to make this cake years ago when I was a member and I have asked loads of people the recipe (as I have forgotten). I used to eat it loads and still lose weight.
    Erm so anyway, do you know the recipe?
